Embracing Summer With Kids

Sunday

Summer is almost over! We’ve been experiencing rain these past few days. Before I know it, it will be cold again! Even though summers in Texas are hot, we embrace them. We try to do some fun activities outside the house, to entertain my two little munchkins. Especially if we don’t have playdates with other moms and kids, these are a must. I wanted to share the simple ways we enjoy summer, without needing to drive.

 

MORNING SUNSHINE

I always try to bring my kids outside after breakfast to see the morning sunshine. Whether walking around the neighborhood, playing on the grass, going for a stroll, or biking I want them to go outdoors. I think it is healthy for them to go out at least twice a day to get fresh air and see nature. It is not quite as hot before 10AM, so that’s the perfect time to enjoy the morning sunshine with kids.

SPLASHING IS LOTS OF FUN!

My kids love to play in the water and get wet! Aside from bringing them to splash pads, I usually let them swim and play in the front yard before their afternoon nap. It’s a win-win because they have fun and can use up all their energy. This causes them to sleep longer (Mama’s Goal!). We used  this pool and put in under a tree for some shade. This pool is affordable and durable. It’s been almost 2 years now since we bought it, and it still looks great. You can also put something like this  Little Tikes First Slide to make this activity more fun!

DIGGING A HOLE

Since I became a parent, I was surprised at how nature offers a lot of entertaining toys for my two kids. They love picking up rocks, acorns, small branches, and are curious about the ants etc. Recently, their favorite activity, especially my toddler’s, has been digging holes. We have been reading a book called Sam and Dave Dig a Hole,and it’s funny to hear from my eldest son about how he wants to find the diamond underground… Well good luck, kid.
